Alcohol, Jealousy Led To Lansing Shooting

LANSING (CBS) — Police say alcohol and jealousy over a woman were contributing factors in an incident early Sunday in which a northwest Indiana man fired a gun at a vehicle and then barricaded himself in a south suburban home.

The man, 28-year-old Kevin Scesney, was apprehended by police after he ran from the home, according to a release from Lansing police. He is being held without bond in the Cook County Jail, according to the Cook County Sheriff’s office.

Lansing police were called to 2610 Ridge Rd. at about 4:15 a.m. Sunday for a call of a man with a gun and shots fired outside the home.

Police say Scesney had fired a gun into a vehicle parked in a driveway at that address, then entered the residence, barricading himself in the basement.

After police arrived, Scesney ran from the home but was apprehended after a foot pursuit. Police also recovered the gun, the release said.

The incident stemmed from a fight Scesney had with a man a few weeks ago, police said. That man was one of the occupants of the home when Scesney fired the gun. Police say alcohol and jealousy were contributing factors in the incident.

    Does anyone know what is going on with the comment section for the story at the top of the page? The same thing happened yesterday with the story about the weekend shooting tallies.
